Q:  

I am looking for a data mining solution and currently see SAS as being the leading provider. Can you suggest who might be the main competitors to SAS, and where it might be possible to obtain a balanced review on the respective merits of each of these providers?

A:  

Douglas Hackney's Answer: Check out the information available at www.twocrows.com. Herb Edelstein has probably forgotten more about data mining than the rest of us will ever know.

Sid Adelman’s Answer: Be sure to look at IBM's Intelligent Miner as well as the data mining tools from some of the smaller companies. For a balanced review, the leading expert on data mining is Herb Edelstein. He can be reached at herb@twocrows.com.
